The Opportunity

We’re proud to be at the forefront of nuclear energy. Investing in new nuclear builds, championing low-carbon energy – we’re working hard for a brighter future. Join us as a Fuel Route Systems Engineer and you’ll help to make sure we can continue to do so. A vital part of the operation of our existing power stations, you’ll use your engineering experience to support safe and reliable operation of the fuel routes across the generating fleet. The role includes development of defuelling safety cases and support to an extensive programme of plant hardening modifications and process improvements. The branch also provides fuel handling expertise to EDF Energy’s nuclear new build interests. This important role requires a strong intellect and the development of complex safety cases so a good degree and a logical approach will be invaluable. Do well in this key position – and make the most of the fantastic training and development opportunities on offer – and your future at EDF Energy will be looking very bright indeed.
